Andrew Bird and I and I

Wednesday Andrew Bird performed live on Jimmy Fallon to congratulate himself on the release of his sixth solo cd “Break It Yourself.” Wasn’t too long ago that I caught Andrew playing in the convention center daytime during SXSW, and it was just his manager Andrea Troolin and I as the audience. I recall meeting Andrea because my client Caroline Beatty thought Howie Greynolds of Overcoat would like her recent material, and he passed me the name of Andrea, who actually lived out here for a while before moving to Minnesota. All these people are effective refutation of the Leo Durocher adage “nice guys finish last”.
